Former beer pitchman admits to child porn charges: Shannon Kari, Canwest News Service. Published: Monday, May 05, 2008

TORONTO – A Toronto actor previously featured in a series of high-profile beer commercials pleaded guilty Monday to possessing hundreds of images of child pornography and several hours of illegal video clips downloaded from the Internet.

Robert Smith, 42, made the admission mid-way through his trial after he abandoned legal arguments that the evidence found by police should be excluded because search warrants were obtained improperly.

The actor pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of child pornography and one count of making child pornography available.”
